Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities, the BLM is temporarily restricting in-person public access to offices, visitor centers, and public rooms in our Nevada offices. Click here for more information.
As the State of Nevada continues to evaluate our adaptive operations plan, all offices remain closed, but are available for scheduled appointments, as appropriate. Our employees are always available by email and phone to answer questions and assist the public with their needs. Our COVID-19 alert contains information on openings, closures and links to additional information provided by the state and CDC.
Battle Mountain District Office
Central Nevada is home to historic mining and ranching that conjure up images of the Wild West. Nevada's mountain ranges and wide open valleys are home to wildlife, livestock, wild horses and burros.
The Battle Mountain District Office manages approximately 10.5 million acres. Opportunities for recreation abound from fishing, hiking, horseback riding and camping to visiting ghost towns, petroglyph sites, rock hounding and stargazing.
